When I first started my own business, I thought that I'm the only one who stays up till 3am in the morning to "finish up something". I remember once when I went to bed at 10am the next day just becasue I had started something that I was so inspired to work on it and ... didn't feel like sleeping. Well, it turns out that this is the case with many entrepreneurs. And here are the top 5 reasons why they stay away till late:

1."What If I make a mistake?"
In business, especially if you are new is: do or die. Literally, one wrong move, one bad decision and you can be out of business pretty soon. And entrepreneurs know that they can't afford that. They can't afford to make a mistake and especially repeated mistakes. One of the KEY choices to make is: how to manage your own time and how to hire an employee that is going to be reliable and hard working. Surprisingly, many employees have their own agenda when working for you and seldo that agenda includes what you look for.

2. What if I made a mistake?
There's plenty of ways even the most perfectly planned event or marketing campaign or any other business related activity to go wrong. Sometimes, the entrepreneur can fix things themselves. Other times – things are just beyond their control or capability. This doesn't stop the entrepreneur to think and sometimes overthing what could have happened differently.

3. What if I loose everything?
And I don't just mean the business, the house, the car. I mean – friends, and family. Business can be easily all consuming. Even if you feel like there is always so much more to do and to be done, the important things in life are the precious moments with your family, with your firends, with your happy customers and all of them deserve to exist in your life. However, being an entrepreneur, calls for different perception of work time and off time and all members of the family need to be on board with that.

4. What if it doesn't work?
Ideally success comes in easy steps that lead one into the other. But what if they don't? Entrepreneurs will just keep working on and on to make sure their actions lead to success, even if it's past 3 in the morning. When it comes to creating more speace for new customers, to creating new ways to promote, campaign, market, to getting their message out there so that more sales can some in, there's always something more to be done and they just need to find it and do it.

5. What if the competition gets my client?
This is ranking probably number 1 reason the entrepreneurs loose their sleep. If your competition don't get the client – how can you keep the client, if the competition does get the client: what is it that they do that you don't do? Then, all this stirrs up all sorts of question about how to keep the clients, how to WOW the clients, how to enhance the client experience with more products, moer bonuses, etc.
